What Is It About The Weather?

A podcast series where we explore the various ways weather is intertwined into and impacts our lives. Weather itself is interesting and amazing, but what can be even more fascinating and intriguing is how much influence it actually has in our lives. Because there is much more to weather than the weather itself!
